Ex-NFL player Sergio Brown arrested in Southern California in connection to mother's slaying
Authorities say former NFL player Sergio Brown has been arrested in Southern California nearly a month after the body of his 73-year-old mother was found behind her suburban Chicago home
Former NFL player Sergio Brown was arrested in Southern California in connection with the death of his mother, authorities said, as he tried to reenter the United States from Mexico just weeks after the 73-year-old woman was found slain behind her suburban Chicago home.
Brown, 35, was detained Tuesday afternoon and booked into San Diego County Jail without bail following a “fugitive arrest,” records show.
Brown agreed to be extradited to Illinois during a Wednesday court hearing, San Diego District Attorney's office spokesperson Steve Walker told The Associated Press in an email.
Authorities in Illinois have until Nov. 13 to retrieve Brown, Walker said.
